The prototype from Bigshot Toyworks (http://www.bigshottoyworks.com/), which will be on display at Mignola's booth (#4901) during SDCC.
Looks so amazing I would love to have one of these on my desk.

I was heavily into the designer vinyl world for a couple of years, but I kinda lost interest because the market became flooded with so much absolute crap.
THIS looks super awesome. Must have!

I agree, I haven't seen much good come from designer toys for a while. Except for all the stuff from Ashely Wood & 3A. But this is a definite must have.

Time out...is this going to be a legit licensed item!? Hot DAMN if that's the case....that is NICE!

Well Holy Smoke & Oh My Breeches.
Looking sweet indeed.
To a must-have capacity it would seem :cool:.

That looks really sweet!!
It's 9 inches.
Here's what BigShot Toyworks say in their newsletter:
We're also incredibly excited to announce two more resin projects, both of which will be available for viewing at San Diego Comic Con. We've just completed the sculpt for a new bust based on Mike Mignola's "Skeleton Head" character, with an estimated launch date of Winter 2010. The prototype will be available for viewing at Mignola's booth, #4901.

So, will these be available in large numbers or only a few? You know me, I am really asking if they will be affordable or not...

That looks fantastic.
I rarely buy figures or statues, but if its affordable this is definitely one I have to get!

I actually prefer John Thompson's interpretation, but this is very cool. Thanks for the heads-up on this - hopefully it won't be *too* limited of an edition, and won't be too difficult to get a hold of...

I just saw this on the "ArtofMikeMignola" Facebook page, and I am both excited and a little depressed. I was hoping to attract the Mignolas' attention with my own sculpture of Skeleton Head, but who knows what went wrong. I would have given my sculpture to a producer just to have the opportunity to get a piece like this made for the Mignolas.
Every time I have contacted the Mignolas about producing a collectible based on one of my sculptures, I have gotten no response. I assume I'm going about it in the wrong way, but I don't know just what I should be doing.
Regardless, congratulations to Bigshot for creating this bust.

I wish I'd seen this before John Thompson's take because I think his is significantly better and in comparison this is actually kind of a let-down for me.

the skull is better in this one...

Well, for providing insight towards your train of thought there, I'd need to start assuming a whole lotta stuff.
Too much stuff, I suppose.
When the fact could well be, that this particular bust would be making a decent one.
I once dated a dentist student for a bit. Without ditching my certified dentist-person all-the-while. Not that the student was holding such against me - or at least I don't think she did.
Although we're not dating anymore. But I still have all my teeth, see: :biggrin:?
EDITED for keeping from assuming too much.

Depending on production numbers, I would guess this to be around the $120 - $160 mark. Possibly even up to $200. Like I said, been out of the collector "toy" market for a couple years now, but for something this size, it seems about right.
EDIT: Oops. The fact that this is resin could bump the price even further. :/

I guess we can all assume we don't fully understand the machinations of those who make such decisions. We can only ponder and reap the benefits.
Kees, my friend, you always keep me thinking. ;)

You may assume you lost me.
Hi Kirk. I edited my post. Can you do the same?
